Do not be fooled

Do not be fooled.jpg

There was something

I misunderstood about you.

I was blinded by your perfection,

at the intertwining of our fingers,

at the crush of your embrace,

at the milky sweetness of your lips

as they caressed mine.

You were my hidden gem–

my diamond,

sparking tenderness in my once hardened heart.

But then I remembered that

all diamonds can be sharpened to blades,

and all sparks can start a fire.
